BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Maine-based retailer Olympia Sports announced it will be closing dozens of stores, including 22 in Massachusetts.

The New England footwear and apparel chain was bought out by JackRabbit in October. The 76 stores that are closing were apparently not part of that sale to the lifestyle brand.

In addition to 22 stores shuttering in Mass., 2 in Rhode Island and 7 in New Hampshire will close.

"Storewide discounts will be offered on all Men's, Women's and Kids' sneakers, running shoes, basketball shoes, boots, joggers, sweatpants, hoodies, sweatshirts, long and short sleeved t-shirts, coats, socks, hats, and much more," said SB360 Capital Partners in a statement.

Executives for Olympia also say there's no need to wait for Black Friday deals, with closing sales beginning Friday.
